There is great support staff that pick you up at the airport and pretty much hand hold you through the entire proceedure.

    I started immediately with intensive physiotherapy. This includes, but is not limited to, daily accupuncture, electronic muscle stimulation, standing frame, exercise and chinese massage. Sometimes these sessions are repeated twice in the same day. I received my first injection of stem cells on day 5 and am already beginning to see positve changes from the combined therapy. 1) I no longer need 12 hours of sleep a night, I am feeling refreshed with only 8 hours of solid sleep. 2) For the first time since my accident I feel hunger. Thank goodness the food is plentiful, delicious and very inexpensive. 3) The constant nausea that has plagued me seems to be gone. 4) Pain is much more managable although not gone. 5) I managed to urinate for the first time without using a catheter. This was just last night and although I did not empty my bladder, it was at least a start. 6) I have a constant sensation in my right leg that is new and I can only describe as what seems to be physical sensation returning. 7) My sphincter muscle, although weak, has begun working. The doctors feel that I should be able to regain bowl function soon. 8) I can do the keegle exercise with excellent results, something I could not do at all before.

    That is all I have to report in the first week and one injection. I wll keep everyone posted.

    Tell me more about your sphincter muscle and keegle exercises. No wait, I'll just have to see this for myself. I'm available as soon as you return....

    Congrats on your positive results thus far...

    Hi that is great, I am happy for you. If you don't mind, I am curious about what level your injury is and how long ago it ocurred.

    Almost finished

    I had my final injection today. We decided to add a 6th injection with a variation. I had a bone marrow sample removed from my hip which was then cultured for 10 days, mixed with the cord blood stem cells and then injected. I have to say, overall, I am more than please with not only the proceedure but the results to date. I had an electrical muscle stimulation test done in the first week and again today. The results show significant changes with muscle response, more so on the right side than the left. This corresponds with what I have seen myself. I continue to have things improve regarding sensation and movement but much slower now than when it originally started. That is more than acceptable as I was told not to expect anything in the initial stages. It normally takes months for things to grow and develop.

    In asnwer to some other questions, I am a T-12 complete who was injured in Sept of 2003, just over 3 years ago. Since then, I have not experienced any spontaneous change. I think it is fair to say that anything that has developed since being here is a result of my treatment on not just by chance coincidence.
